Policy Policy Working Group
Working Group Chair
- Mark Carlson, DMTF Fellow
Working Group Description
Policy-based management provides an abstraction that enables the definition of system behaviors, independent of implementations. Policies can be used to specify resource management configuration directives and, at a higher abstraction layer, they can be used to specify user experience management directives.
The DMTF’s Policy Working Group continues to develop rule- based mechanisms for highly scalable management of heterogeneous systems. This includes modeling of policy rules using generic event-condition-action classes, as well as evolution of the Common Information Model’s (CIM’s) Policy Model.
